Wizz Air restarts flights to four green list countries

Wizz Air is restarting flights to four quarantine-free countries on the government’s green list when international travel is allowed from May 17.

The budget carrier will resume services to Faro and Lisbon in Portugal, Tel Aviv in Israel, Reykjavik in Iceland and Gibraltar.

The airline’s schedule from this time next week will cover a total of 80 destinations from 11 UK airports.

UK managing director Owain Jones said: “The Wizz Air team welcomes the announcement from the UK government on the green list countries for the restart of international travel.

“We are prepared to ramp up operations quickly when restrictions ease, with the recent delivery of four brand new A321neo aircraft and the expansion of our UK network.

“In the past year alone, we have launched over 20 new routes to Europe and beyond, providing affordable air fares to exciting destinations.

“We are looking forward to welcoming passengers back on board our young, green aircraft, where they can rely on our stringent health and hygiene measures and excellent service as they head to their post lockdown getaway.”
